Hands-On with the new Casio G-Shock Gravitymaster GPW2000

Jason Pitsch

Casio’s latest pilot watch, the G-Shock Gravitymaster GPW2000-3A, features the most accurate timekeeping technology ever presented in a watch. Using its 3-Way Time Sync feature, the Gravitymaster automatically calibrates the time with redundant military-level precision. First, the watch automatically utilizes Bluetooth to connect to the time server via your phone. This low-energy Bluetooth connection requires the least amount of power and so that is one reason it is always the default method for calibrating the time. Second, if the Bluetooth calibration fails, multi-band 6 radio-controlled atomic timekeeping is utilized. Third, if those aforementioned two methods fail, GPS calibration is activated. Finally, if the 3-ways mentioned do not work you can manually set your watch. However, considering the redundancy of the 3 methods, you will virtually never have to manually set the watch, ever. In addition to the unprecedented timekeeping technology

Baselworld 2017: Casio G-Shock MR-G “Aka-Zonae”

Jason Pitsch

This week at Baselworld 2017, Casio announced a very special version of their high-end titanium cased MR-G collection, which is clad with a unique deep crimson red color that pays homage to an elite warrior unit that was part of a feudal clan during Japan’s medieval Sengoku “Warring States” period. The red color was adapted from traditional Japanese armor, known as “aka-zonae” (or red-colored armor), which symbolized strength and unity. The G-Shock MR-G “Aka-Zonae” comes in a black PVD plated pure titanium case, that according to Casio, is exceptionally scratch resistant thanks to a process where the titanium is heated in a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen gas used to a 20-30µm hard layer on the material’s outer surface. Further, as part of a dual-layer hardening processing, after the titanium is hardened, DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating is applied to the

Casio introduces "Pro Trek" Smart Outdoor Watch

Casio recently unveiled the second version of their outdoor WSD-F10 smartwatch – carrying the coveted “Pro Trek” moniker for the first time. The Pro Trek Smart Outdoor watch (Ref. WSD-F20) comes in a rugged resin case, measuring a large 56.4 mm x 15.3 mm, which also means the screen is quite large as well at 1.32-inches. Yet, because of the case construction, the total weight with strap is 92 grams, so it will not weigh you down when hiking, fishing, hunting, cycling, or whatever outdoor activity you buy it for. One really cool feature called “Casio Moment Link” allows you to use your watch to form a group, with the ability for up to nine people to connect. This means you can share your location data on a map, terrain, or satellite display. You can also send text messages or

Casio Celebrates Its 30th Anniversary with Limited Edition G-Shocks

The first G-Shock, the DW-5000C-1A, designed by Casio engineer Kikuo Ibe, was released in April of 1983. The G-Shock design has mostly stayed the same over the years, which considering its unmistakable look, is a good thing. G-Shocks have long been known for their digital display and sporty shock resistance design, and although in recent years they have introduced upgrades and innovations such as solar power, atomic timekeeping, analog displays and even an electronic crown - they are still best known for their distinctive large shock resistance resin cases and digital displays. To celebrate G-Shock's upcoming 30th Anniversary (2013), Casio has released limited edition models of the best selling styles, all with red gloss or matte red finishes. Each piece features a special case back engraved with a "30th Anniversary" logo designed by graffiti artist Eric Haze. Of the
